Tip #19: Avoid Bright Spots
Our eyes naturally gravitate to looking at the brightest spot in a photo. If your photo is of a polar bear on a snowy background then the bright spots are fine. But most of our photos are of landscapes full of trees in vibrant fall colors or animals blending into their backgrounds. If your landscape photo has a white sun without detail then the viewer's eyes will be drawn to that element of the photo rather than the beautiful landscape below. Or if your photo is of a pika on bright and overexposed rocks, then the viewer will notice those rocks first and may not see the cute pika with a mouth full of flowers and leaves.
